The U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) Program is seeking to fund projects that advance new or existing technology-based solutions that address long-standing and emerging coastal observing, product development and data management challenges.
The projects will be focused on technologies with demonstrated operators who commit to integrated, long-term use of those technologies and open data sharing. The technologies must be sufficiently mature for long-term operations.
This announcement specifically funds activities needed to progress those technologies through the transitional stages between research and full operations, such as system integration, testing, validation and verification.
Full proposals are due by Monday, March 20, 2017.
